Why should I add a call-to-action button?

1. Turn more interest into ticket sales.

People viewing your Instagram profile and posts are likely interested in attending your events or shows, but they may not be willing to put in the extra effort to find out how to purchase tickets. With a clear, bold “Get Tickets” button on your profile, casual browsers can become attendees in just a few simple taps.

2. Efficiently grow your audience.

Instagram can get your event in front of the 200 million people who check out brand profiles daily—and the 30% of people who have purchased something that they first saw on Instagram. See our eblink{Guide to Instagram for Event Marketing=>https://eventbrite.com/blog/academy/event-marketing-on-instagram/} for more details.

3. Sell more tickets by simplifying the checkout on Eventbrite.

When a buyer purchases a ticket via our Instagram integration, any personal information stored in their Facebook account (first name, last name, and email address) gets automatically pulled in, making their purchase as effortless as possible. The fewer steps in a checkout, the more likely a buyer is to complete their purchase.

4. Track sales from Instagram on your Event Dashboard.

Your Event Dashboard will display all sales attributed to your “Get Tickets” button on Instagram, helping you stay informed and make better business decisions about your social media activity, including your Instagram advertising.
